Who dumped the tea in the Harbor?
|The British were taxing the colonists on tea and they weren't very happy about it, so they decided to go to the 3 ships sailing into the harbor that night and dump all the tea in the harbor.
||The colonist, Son's of Liberty, dressed up as Indians and went onto the ships and dumped tea into the harbor.
||The Boston Tea Party was at the 3 ships sitting in the Boston Harbor.
